Value of Porcelain Dolls?

I have 2 dolls that I have had for a long time. They are still in boxes with all the wrappings.

Goebel Betty Jane Carter doll - Betsey - musical "Home Sweet Home"

Dynasty porcelain doll - Rebecca

They both have certificates of authenticity and are never out of the box. Can anyone tell me what they may be worth. When I look for them on eBay, etsy or the internet; I can never find them.

Thanks.

Both of these dolls are mass-produced and are worth $25 or less.

Because certificate says 242/1000. So the one I have was not mass produced. So if you could share where you found them, that would be great.

Your dolls are on Ebay,some are offering Bids so they can try to reach over $25, which is the going rate for these. The worth is low!

Hello,

Your Betsey doll is on eBay now with an asking price of $35 so you may want to watch it to see if she sells:

www.ebay.com/.../323550809850?hash=item4b55218efa...

Your Rebecca (she looks like the soft body gal) is on with an asking price of 14.99 (seller pays shipping which is going to be costly)

www.ebay.com/.../254193064063?hash=item3b2f16587f...

It is hard to find dolls online to because most people who resell dolls these days are "flippers" who buy them very cheap at thrift stores and hope to turn a profit or people who inherit them and want them out of the house because they either hate dolls or just have no room for them.

These folks have no clue how to name or identify their dolls and all they want to do get it listed and sold.

This lack of care results in a bunch of garbage in Google searches...as they will be listed as "Porcelain Doll White Dress" or "Blonde Haired Doll with Hat". Some don't even know to list the brand and they almost never know the "name" from the COA. It is sad.

I don't see comparables for these sold so you will want to watch the active items and see if they sell and for how much and that will give you today's current market value. Please do not be surprised if they sit for months unsold.

The doll market is at its all time worst and values are the lowest they have ever been.

Post back with updates! Thanks for sharing your gals!

If your certificate says 242/1000 then your doll is the 242nd doll made in a lot of 1000 dolls produced by this manufacturer. This is what they consider mass-produced dolls. There are many of these dolls on the market today and they are hard to sell off. I have seen people trying to give them away for $1 and others who are asking $5 to $20 for the doll. They are hard to sell off because the dolls are so many of them and people are not buying them at the moment.
